Pete O Rourke says Tottenham could sell Emerson Royal in the summer
The news that Emerson Royal could be sold by Tottenham Hotspur this summer may not come as a surprise to many Spurs fans. The 24-year-old has struggled to establish himself as a regular starter in the team since his arrival from Barcelona last summer.
While he has shown glimpses of his potential, he has also been criticized for his inconsistent. He did show signs of improvement in recent weeks but has found himself crippled by injuries of late.
Pedro Porro was signed by Tottenham as their first choice option for this position. His energetic and attacking style has won over the Spurs faithful and could become a key component in upcoming games.
With Porro in the team, it is understandable that Spurs would be willing to let Emerson go if the right offer comes in. While it is true that Emerson has not been able to adapt to English football as quickly as some had hoped, it is important to remember that he is still a young player with potential.
A move back to Spain could be just what Emerson needs to rediscover his form and confidence. He knows the league and the culture well, having played for Real Betis before his move to Barcelona.
A fresh start in familiar surroundings could be just what he needs to kickstart his career. Tottenham, meanwhile, will be looking to reinvest the money from Emerson’s sale in a quality defender.
This has been a problem position for the club for some time now, and it is clear that they need to strengthen in this area if they are to compete with the top teams in the league. In fact, one defender might actually not be enough.
